Zak Brown’s Candid Admission: Building Up McLaren Pre-Season Expectations Was ‘Pointless’
Zak Brown, the CEO of McLaren, has revealed that the team chose not to build up pre-season expectations for the 2023 Formula 1 season due to concerns about the performance of their car. The McLaren MCL60 initially showed signs of being significantly slower than the team had hoped for, leading to a cautious approach.
While the start of a new season typically brings optimism and anticipation, McLaren took a different approach this time. After a strong 2021 season, the team faced challenges in developing the MCL60, and early indications suggested that the car was not meeting their performance targets.
